So it is time to select GAME OF THE YEAR 2016!!!!
The problem is that I've found no easy way to create a list of games that would fit the selection.
So can anybody help me with:
How to get a list/listing/page of games where I have at least 1 logged Play and has a release date of 2016?
(I thought it would be easy but I've stumbled around, even in the Friendless-stats, without finding it)
Not elegant, but one method would be to rate all of the games you played this year. (You can get a list of all the games you played this year by going to My Geek, then Profile, then in the Plays section click Total, then put in an appropriate date range.)
Once you have the games you played this year rated, you can do Advanced Search and filter by your collection Rated.
That's weird, it really seems like it should be possible in Advanced Search, but as far as I can tell it's not.
I have a script for my own use that does something similar; I've adapted it for your case. This shows games you played in 2015 or 2016 that have a release year of 2016. If you played any 2016 games in 2014, you're out of luck.

('X nimmt!', '205885'),
('A Feast for Odin', '177736'),
('Cottage Garden', '204027'),
('Lorenzo il Magnifico', '203993'),
('Terraforming Mars', '167791'),
('Terraforming Mars: Launch Kit Promo', '202825'),
('The Manhattan Project: Chain Reaction', '177249'),
('Dominion: Empires', '192951'),
('Mystic Vale', '194607'),
('Via Nebula', '191231'),
('Eminent Domain: Battlecruisers', '163641'),
('Sea of Clouds', '189052'),
('Millennium Blades', '151347'),
('Android: Mainframe', '193557'),
('Star Wars: Rebellion', '187645'),
('Good Cop Bad Cop: Undercover', '188154'),
I'm curious if there's a way to get it from the site without a bunch of API calls, though!

I only have a fair few:
Pandemic: The Cure – Experimental Meds
But I also have some on `Want to play` list that are from 2016.

As of right now I only have two games from this year:
Imhotep - Meh! Only one play though and it was using all the "A" sides.
Quadropolis - Really liked this one. So I guess it's my game of the year so far, hehe.
I do have have Great Western Trail and Karuba on the way.
I've also not found an easy way to create such a list.
"Advanced Search" has "Filter by Collection", but only for "Rated" or "Owned", not for "Played".
"My Geek > Collection" has a filter for "Played: Yes", but "Year Published" isn't a column that can be used to sort the results.
When I download my collection as a csv file, "Year Published" is a column, but play data isn't included.
http://www.sheltonsonline.net/bggtools/getplays allows you to download your play data, but "Year Published" isn't included.
